Peterside mourns literary giant Elechi Amadi, describes him as a patriot

LAGOS (Sundiata Post) – Director-General, Nigerian Maritime Administration & Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Dakuku Peterside, has described Captain Elechi Amadi as a patriot and literary icon who lived a good life.
According to a statement sent to Sundiata Post on Wednesday by Sylvester Asoya, his media aide, Peterside said: “Today we mourn the passage of a globally acknowledged literary icon and role model who lived an exemplary life.

“Captain Elechi Amadi, certainly was a man of many parts who touched lives in many ways. And he will be remembered for good by many people who met him physically or through his books. He was a well known author, publisher, soldier and statesman who was concerned about a better society.

“My generation will definitely remember him more for his great books like the Concubine, the Great Ponds, Sunset in Biafra, Estrangement, The Slave and a collection of poems.

“It is regrettable that Amadi passed away at a time when Rivers, our dear state is still far away from the aspirations of its founding fathers like him and most sons and daughters of the state.  There is no doubt that Elder Elechi Amadi and other founding fathers will be weeping in their graves at the state of Rivers State.  Nigeria and the international literary community has lost a creative giant.

“The departed patriot, no doubt, had a remarkable life and he will surely be remembered for serving humanity with literature and his interventions.
May his soul find eternal rest in the Lord.”
